Finding calm in times of change

From A Christian Science Perspective in the Christian Science Monitor

Keith S. Collins writes:

Christ Jesus was so completely at peace when he found himself in a boat on a lake in the middle of a storm that he lay quietly asleep. When his disciples awakened him, out of fear, he simply “arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm” (see Mark 4:36-41).

We are all heirs of Jesus’ teachings and demonstrations of God’s authority. His commanding, spiritual rebuke of seemingly threatening circumstances is one that spiritual seers today can learn to take up. In Mrs. Eddy’s words: “Mind is the grand creator, and there can be no power except that which is derived from Mind. If Mind was first chronologically, is first potentially, and must be first eternally, then give to Mind the glory, honor, dominion, and power everlastingly due its holy name” (Science and Health, p. 143).

We’re in good hands when we know that God is in charge.
